Matahari Putra abandons $1bn sale, seeks partner

first_img INDONESIA’S Matahari Putra Prima said it will retain its hypermarket business as a wholly owned entity, effectively scrapping a $1bn (£645m) sale plan, but will look for a global partner to expand the business.The decision to retain the unit comes after two rounds of bidding for Matahari’s hypermart business, Indonesia’s second largest, which sources had said was aimed at raising $1bn.The deal had generated interest from South Korea’s Lotte Shopping, French retailer Casino Guichard Perrachon, and Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer.“One of the main reasons for Matahari to drop the sale is that the bidding price was lower than they expected,” said Ikhsan Binarto, an analyst at Indopremier Securities in Jakarta. “But the statement could also be an effort by the Lippo Group to get a better price by playing hard to get,” he added.

Noah Riley | Friday, 18th December, 2020 | More on: CWK PFD The market has been split recently, with many investors advocating buying into growth shares and others arguing that value shares offer the best long-term potential. This has created significant uncertainty surrounding the future of the market. I have identified two FTSE 250 companies that I think tick both the growth and value boxes, and am considering for my own portfolio.Cranswick offers a good opportunity  FTSE 250 food producer Cranswick (LSE: CWK) has had a relatively stagnant year compared to its long-term history of growth. This price consolidation could offer an excellent entry point in my opinion.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Cranswick is a highly diversified food producer with a portfolio spanning poultry, pork, convenience foods and gourmet products. In 2019 Cranswick continued to diversify, acquiring three companies that expanded its non-meat offerings, increasingly reflecting consumers’ changing consumption habits. The company is a strong cash generator, focusing on efficiency and supply chain management.Cranswick sources much of its food from its own fully-owned farms. By doing this Cranswick is able to keep a tight control on costs and improve margins while delivering ‘farm to fork’ quality control. It also gives the company long-term sustainability as Cranswick remains in control of the whole supply chain, reducing the risk of disruptions.Due to its increasingly diverse revenues and well-managed operations, Cranswick has delivered 30 consecutive years of dividend growth, creating substantial shareholder value. This has been achieved through the company’s incredible top-line revenue performance, which continued into 2020. Considering this strong sales growth combined with a solid dividend yield, a P/E of about 20x makes for an attractive entry price which I am considering acting on for my own portfolio.Another great FTSE 250 sharePremier Foods (LSE: PFD) owns some of Britain’s best loved food brands, including Mr Kipling cakes, Bird’s custard and Oxo stock cubes. These household staples underpin a solid FTSE 250 business that has a consistent history of delivering revenue growth.2020 looks like a record sales year for the company as it has benefited from a UK lockdown-driven spike in demand. Previous headwinds have been overcome, with a definitive pension agreement set to save the company £115m to £145m in potential deficit contributions.The company has also reduced its net debt by £40m to £429m over the past year. This reduction has de-leveraged the company’s balance sheet, bringing down the net debt/EBITDA ratio to 2.7x, ahead of the previously stated target of 3x announced back in 2017.The past two to three years have also seen a major restructuring of the company and this has delivered a sizeable positive impact to company profits. Following these changes, Premier Foods looks set to combine solid revenue growth with consistently improving earnings. At a P/E of about 11x, this is a share that I am eyeing up for a long-term investment.last_img read more

The Currie Cup Semi Finals Compilation

first_imgMonday Oct 19, 2009 The Currie Cup Semi Finals Compilation We saw two pulsating Semi Finals in the 2009 Currie Cup this past weekend, showing us exactly why South African rugby is on the top of the world at the moment.In Durban, many expected the Natal Sharks to be favourites at home against a hard working Freestate Cheetahs side. In Cape Town, tickets to the Newlands match between Western Province and the Blue Bulls had sold out in an hour and a half, such is the rivalry between the two sides.For the Bulls, Springbok sensation Morne Steyn kicked seven penalties, totally 21 points on the day. Province struggled to get into the match, but the hard work up front, most notably from Tiaan Liebenberg, started to pay off as Joe Pietersen kept them in touch with four penalties of his own.Gio Aplon, who punched above his weight all day, scored a great try as he sprinted between two big guys to dot down late in the match, with a comeback looking on the cards.Ace marksman Steyn slotted the match winning kick with three minutes left as the Bulls fended off the Province resurgence, this earning themselves a home final. It ended 21-19 to the Bulls.The Sharks dominated early possession, territory, and points in their match against the Cheetahs in Durban. It was Hugh Bladen in the commentary box that echoed the thoughts of everyone watching after Juan Martin Hernandez dropkicked the Sharks even further in front: “The Cheetahs are in trouble here.”The Sharks scored two great running tries through Stefan Terblanche and Ruan Pienaar, while the Cheetahs found their opportunities first in the form of tighthead WP Nel crashing over.A wayward pass from the Sharks then bounced favourably for man of the match Jacques-Louis Potgeiter, who sprinted away for a try against the run of play.It was Potgeiter again, in the final minute, who dropped back into the pocket for the match winning drop goal, completing a successful Cheetahs fight back and booking his team’s ticket to Loftus Versfeld in two weeks time. It ended 23-21 to the Freestate Cheetahs.We’ve combined highlights from both semi finals into one compilation with the hopes of bringing you a more in depth look at what was some magnificent rugby from all four teams.Aside from the tries, weve included various other bits, namely some examples of the hard work from the likes of Freestate loosies Ashley Johnson and Heinrich Brussow, and the tactical prowess of Hernandez for the Sharks.

The site occupies a former defense barracks on the ridgeline of Middle Head, with significant views of Middle Harbour to the North and Bradley Bushland Reserve to the West.

The intention is to reveal the richness of materials through clarity of assembly. The form is a simple composition of four off-form concrete walls that support an expressed steel-framed roof vault. The concrete walls ground the building and provide protection from the elements and privacy. A terracotta clad volume containing the library rises above the roof vault to best command views of the harbor. Save this picture!© Kraig CarlstromA series of implied and more formally defined spaces create an architectural promenade, enriched through the continuity of the restrained exterior material palette to the building’s interior. The sense of movement through the spatial sequence is heightened by introducing timber detailing where these elements are within reach of human touch. Save this picture!© Kurt ArnoldThe architectural promenade commences with an avenue of trees, directing views towards the rising form of the terracotta clad library, the off-form concrete entrance canopy and timber-lined entry vestibule. Beyond the front door, a series of spaces are defined by changes in level below a unifying ceiling vault. A curved timber wall directs the eye through wide openings of sliding glass toward panoramic views. In contrast to these subtly defined spaces, the dining room is contained between terracotta-clad splayed columns, which direct a linear view to the horizon. Save this picture!© Kraig CarlstromThe house accommodates 5 bedrooms over 3 storeys. The children’s bedrooms, playroom and garage are accommodated on the lower ground level, with the living areas and master suite on the upper-ground entrance level. The uppermost level accommodates the library. The plan is a clear linear arrangement where living spaces and bedrooms open to the North, with service areas and amenities to the South. Save this picture!© Kurt ArnoldThe development has a positive impact to the built form and immediate neighborhood as its amenities are enjoyed by children living on the street. It has facilitated an old neighborhood feel to the area. It was designed with the input of many other consultants and a collaborative approach during construction. A careful selection of sustainable external materials and details ensure the longevity of the building’s lifespan. A low maintenance home, it has no painted external walls and low water use vegetation. It has minimal energy and water consumption having light filled spaces sheltered from the heat, north orientation with large overhangs, cross flow ventilation, high performance glazing, energy and water efficient fixtures, solar power for hot water and pool, photovoltaics and a rain water collection facility for irrigation, toilets and laundry. The building is designed as a private home for the long term use of its owners with a high level of finish and detailing within the budget requirements.Project gallerySee allShow lessFAST Light at MITArticlesLatitud3sArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/119053/mosman-house-popov-bass-architects Clipboard ArchDaily “COPY” CopyAbout this officePopov Bass ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasSydneyHouses3D ModelingAustraliaPublished on March 21, 2011Cite: “Mosman House / Popov Bass Architects” 21 Mar 2011.

The project initiated by an intellectual couple, had a clear starting point, as highlighted to architects Laszlo Foldes and Peter Sonicz: “We own a length of books something like 100 meters”. The owners of the site had found the best location to retire from work and the noise of Budapest in a rich natural environment, at the side of the Big-Proud Peak.Save this picture!© Levente SirokaiPilisborosjeno, a town some 15 km to North Buda, stretches in between hills surrounded by villas that inhabit the Pilis hillside. The plot is approached from a chain of narrow and steep roads. When arriving at the gate, just the green canopy of trees that shade the site and a minimalist concrete parking lot are visible. Thanks to the sloping garden, the house is hidden behind this rich, welcoming flora and fauna which plays a crucial part of the aesthetic. The owners aim of saving and keeping as much of the original plants and trees as possible has paid dividends.Save this picture!© Levente Sirokai“Taking into consideration the narrow and long shape of the building site, the way of the sun and the low budget programme, also the age of the couple who are to be retired soon, we advised them to realize a straightforward base plan, where the spaces are linked with a long corridor and public spaces face the panoramic view of the valley. At the same time, to avoid creating under-utilized space we discovered the great potential of the corridor concept. We turned this horizontal axis into a highly beneficial and unique element of the house, a 17 meter long wall of library.” – remarked the architects, Laszlo Foldes and Peter Sonicz concerning the design concept.Save this picture!© Levente SirokaiAs approaching the house, a closed brick wall surreptitiously peeps from behind the trees and a staircase down to the base where the sauna and a store room are located. Behind the brick wall, on the ground floor, a master bedroom and a bathroom are situated. If one follows the brick pavement they arrive at the main entrance on the Northeast side, viewing the middle point of the corridor which leads to the public zone on the left hand side and to the private on the right. The latter consists of the working room, bathroom and the bedroom with its own terrace providing a stunning view of the westerly aspect with sunset views over the rolling hills and beyond.Save this picture!© Levente SirokaiThe inner spaces follow the prolapse of the building site therefore the level of the floor is made continuously deeper via few stairs, enlarging the height (first after leaving the private zone, than when entering the living room, and finally when reaching the garden from the living room’s terrace). This results a variety of spaces, enjoying each case higher ceilings and wider rooms, ending up with the limitless panorama of the terrace.Save this picture!© Levente SirokaiThe giant bookshelf fulfils more functions than one might expect. Throughout its 17 meters the modular system architects designed opens up, enabling a window to perfectly fit in, and a window seat – thanks to the 50 cm deep walls. In the living room the shelves are united with the fireplace.Save this picture!Section C“It was our general aim to assure the proper inner climate with architectural means rather than constructing huge machinery. The house has a 50 cm thick brick wall, meeting the heating technological standards and giving sufficient thermal inertia. The ceiling slab is made of wood and the empty, well ventilated attic behaves as a „buffer zone” optimising the inner climate. The terrace of the living room plays an important role in the protection against rain or intense sunshine, while it is an extension of the living room as well as an intermediate space between in and out.” – added the architects, Laszlo Foldes and Peter Sonicz.Save this picture!© Levente SirokaiProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Interviews: Will Bruder / Will Bruder ArchitectsInterviewsMola Structural Kit: A New Way to Learn About StructuresArchitecture News Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/544119/the-long-brick-house-foldes-architects Clipboard Architects: Foldes Architects Area Area of this architecture project Area:  138 m² Area:  138 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Photographs Save this picture!© Levente Sirokai+ 37 Share The Long Brick House / Foldes Architects ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/544119/the-long-brick-house-foldes-architects Clipboard Projects Hungary Year:  CopyAbout this officeFoldes ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPilisborosjenőHousesHungaryPublished on September 12, 2014Cite: “The Long Brick House / Foldes Architects” 12 Sep 2014.

Charity faces €5 million target in five months

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The new chief executive of Special Olympics Ireland, Matt English, says he needs to raise €5 million by May.The charity last week launched its 2009 fundraising campaign, which runs until May and has a target of raising €5 million through a programme of local and national events. The tagline for the campaign is ‘change.’“My priority is sustaining the current organisation and creating opportunities for others,” English said. “We want to deliver on the promise of changing the lives of people, and there are still more than 24,000 people with intellectual disabilities that we don’t have as members.”The fundraising campaign will support those goals, as well as the ongoing training of existing Special Olympics athletes. English said it cost about €6 million annually to run the organisation.About 30 per cent of that comes from the government and the charity has also cultivated valuable sponsorship deals, including a long-standing relationship with Eircom and a more recent one with Kia Motors.English said that Eircom was supporting the current fundraising campaign, with everything from office space for regional volunteers to high speed internet facilities. The campaign is structured from the ground up, with 39 regional offices run by voluntary committees. Between now and May, those groups will run everything from cake sales to race nights, while a national ad campaign covers bus shelters and the airwaves. Forms to attract regular donors through standing orders have been drawn up – a first for the charity.The search for the 2009 Granny of the Year is already under way, and an all-Ireland collection day is slated for Friday, April 24, under a committee headed by Jim Barry, chief executive of utility firm NTR.A church gate collection is also being considered for April 26. English is optimistic that the charity will reach its €5 million target, despite the economic slowdown.’ ‘There is evidence that some charities benefit in bad times because people reevaluate their lives and see more value in being part of society,” he said.

According to the latest information available to Reporters Without Borders, she had gone to the pro-Morsi demonstration in the square in a personal capacity, not as a reporter.Many Egyptian journalists, especially news photographers, were injured while covering the violent dispersal of the pro-Morsi demonstrations in Rabaa Al-Adawiya Square and Mostafa Mahmoud Square today. According to the Egyptian emergency services and Agence France-Presse, more than 100 people were killed and 758 were wounded in the clashes.The injured journalists included Reuters photographer Asma Waguih, who was hit in the leg by a shot fired from an AK-47 rifle, doctors said. She is still in hospital and is to undergo an operation. They also included Tarek Abbas, a reporter for the Egyptian newspaper Al-Watan, who sustained gunshot injuries to an eye and a leg.Iman Hilal, a photographer for the Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm, was covering the sit-in in Rabaa Al-Adawiya Square when Morsi supporters threatened him with a knife and forced him to hand over his camera’s memory card.Photographer Ahmad Najjar sustained a gunshot injury to the arm during the clashes in Mostafa Mahmoud Square. He and colleagues said he was shot by Morsi supporters, who then seized his camera.A representative of the Egyptian Union of Journalists said most of the media victims were photographers because their greater visibility exposed them to targeted shooting.Reporters Without Borders is very worried by the way journalists have been targeted during the violence of the past few days in Egypt and urges both the security forces and demonstrators to respect the independence of media personnel.Reporters Without Borders also calls on the Egyptian authorities to do everything possible to ensure that these serious acts of violence to do not go punished and that those responsible are quickly identified.Late this afternoon, the Egyptian authorities proclaimed a one-month state of emergency, which will make it even harder for journalists to cover developments.
